There's an article on today's New Statesman website, by a radical feminist, with the title"A modest proposal for making the sex industry safer. Make punters get a license"
It actually sounds very reasonable until the end. If I understand it correctly, it's just a license to ask an escort for penetrative sex for money. And you have to pay the escort her fee, whether or not you have sex. So it's not really clear to me what you are really paying her for.( You might as well ask a non sex worker for sex because if she says "no" you've haven't lost out. )
OK, it's intended to eliminate economic pressure to do the job. But I just wonder if the author of the article has had a cleaner or a babysitter, and offered to pay her the money whether or not she consented to do the job. I don't know about anyone else, but economic pressure is the only reason I do my job.
It would be fairer if the same license system applied to marriage. Then there would be a level playing field. If when proposing marriage men had to guarantee the equivalent of a divorce settlement if his intended said "no." (That would soon put a stop to rich old men getting trophy brides and penetrating them. )
Anyway it seems like it's only really penetrative sex that the article objects to so I suppose there's always the option of a greasy tit fuck.
